Marlow, UK - 14 February, 2012: Global security software company, Trend Micro is delighted to welcome two international athletes on board to help celebrate this year’s impending London 2012 Olympic Games – Greg Searle and Dani King.

After a sensational comeback in 2009, 1992 Olympic Champion rower Greg Searle is back and going for gold, while one of Great Britain’s most exciting road and track cycling talents, World Team Pursuit Champion, Dani King, is raring to hit the track. For both athletes, technology has become an important part of their lives, sharing their training schedule with fans via social media and keeping in touch with friends and family while on the move. It has become more important than ever for them to protect themselves online, knowing that they can enjoy their ‘digital lives’ safely and securely.

Greg, who is widely regarded as one of Britain’s very best rowers of the last 20 years said: “I’m really excited to be working with Trend Micro and sharing my journey over the coming months. As an athlete it’s an absolute privilege to be in with a chance to compete at London 2012 and I’ve got my sights set on winning another Olympic gold medal; 20 years on from when I won Gold in Barcelona as a 20 year old!”

The synergies between Trend Micro and these fantastic athletes are clear; a passion and 100% focus on speed, innovation and performance to stay ahead of the competition. For Dani and Greg, this has enabled them to lead the way in their respective sports and for Trend Micro, to be consistently rated number one in internet security.

Dani, one of Great Britain’s most exciting road and track cycling talents added: “Support like this really does help me to become the best I can be, and hopefully win that gold medal in London. It’s really exciting because obviously I use technology everyday; I’m always on my phone, tweeting and blogging, just to keep in contact with friends and family.”
